With the help of so many generous community members, the family says they have more than enough school supplies to start off the school year. 

“This one lady and her son brought us three bags of school supplies and backpacks and everything we need for the school year,” Aguilar said.

They’ve received things like new backpacks, pencils, notebooks and binders.

“The woman [who donated to us] said they know what it’s like to be in the position we are in,” Aguilar said.

Estevan’s mom, Evalena said they’ve even received support from people all the way in Phoenix, Arizona who heard about Estevan’s story.
